CASE-ing Christmas #25

Two days, two posts!!!!!  Can you tell the weather is rubbish?  hehe

Over at CASE-ing Christmas their challenge is to case Ellen's card and here it is:

And here is mine:

I started off by embossing some blue cardstock with my Swiss Dots e/f by Couture Creations which I matted onto a square silver card base.  I then took my Christmas Sparkle stamp set from Clearly Besotted and heat embossed the snowflake Christmas Tree using silver e/p.  I did the same with the trunk for the tree and the sentiment.  I then cut the tree using the matching die and matted it and the sentiment onto holographic silver card.  Although the cardstock I used is a dark navy it seems to look black in the photo.  There was also a little snowflake stamp in the set and I used Tsuneiko Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink to add a few snowflakes over the dotty background.  Final touch was to add some diamond gems.

Thanks for dropping by.

Happy crafting.
